I have no idea what forum to post this in, but I haven't seen this posted thus far.





Malone, New York (CNN)Escaped murderer David Sweat, who led law enforcement on a more-than-three-week chase, has been shot and is in custody.

A New York State Police sergeant on roving patrol saw Sweat on Sunday, and after Sweat ran, the sergeant shot him, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. It did not appear Sweat was armed, the official said.

A photo exclusively obtained by CNN shows Sweat in custody moments after his capture. The photograph shows him bloodied, wearing a camouflage outfit -- not prison garb.

The 3 week drama is finally over with the shooting and capture of David Sweat. He was spotted by law enforcement walking down the road near Constable NY, near the Canadian border. The report doesn't say if he was armed or not. Sweat has been transported to a local hospital, they are not saying what his condition is.

The Daily Mail says he was shot twice but not with life-threatening wounds. One place said that he was armed.

Great. Those two have been a minor distraction as of late.

They had to keep one of them alive in order for the story to be told. Society loves to idolize criminals and Hollywood never lets a good tragedy go to waste. He's more valuable than ever.

Well if they are able to keep him alive and question him, I suspect there may be more arrests in this case.

Kinda scary when you think about it.

From what I have read, this is a big problem.

I thought this was a tv miniseries on CNN for a while there. Oh well you have to get ratings one way or the other right?

Yes, that should be the primary motive for keeping him alive.

It seems more of an internal problem than criminals pulling the wool over everybody's eyes. One small window of opportunity and those with nothing to lose will do whatever it takes.

Not to mention, with every new arrest the plot thickens!

Agreed.

Yea these people in prison have plenty time on there hands to find the weak ones.

The need for freedom can be very strong.

The spokesman said they were carrying picnic type pepper shakers to throw the dogs off their scent.

Ha Ha, I'm not real sure that would do it.

I just flipped on CNN and they are stressing the fact that he was a mile and some away from the Canadian border.

I'm sure that the Canadian athorities would have been envolved too.

Is that just hype on their part?

I can't get beyond the fact the enormous amount of money spent to track these two escapees down. All because of a couple individuals who gave them the tools to escape. The taxpayers are now left holding the bill.

Yeah no sh!t right!?!?
I was lookn at Fox while they had the press on it. It seemed to me that they were acting like they won the World Series. And I'm like.....C'mon man....it's only been like 20 years since they had broken out. Don't pat yourselves so hard on the bum.

I have read 1 million dollars a day and well over 1000 searches, how many warrants do you think they got? Any excuse to suspend rights is the sop.

I'm on the same page as you.
Now I gotta decide if seeing Cool Hand Luke is better than winning game 7.

We wondered whether it was true or not when we were young. Despite MythBusters I still believe it is true. I would tell you a story involving my rabbit dog a bet and a sneezing fit. But people would probably find it in poor taste.

It's only a matter of time before CNN crowns David Sweat as... "THE MASTERMIND". They stroke terrorists' egos like this all the time. The evil-doers in this world have CNN as their go-to TV channel, and the Home Page of their browser. All hoping to one day be labeled as "The Mastermind", by CNN.

Terrorists also watch CNN to learn of America's fears and weaknesses. Earlier this year, CNN ran a series describing how vulnerable jets are on take-off, to shoulder fired missiles at many U.S. airports. Sometimes you wonder whose side CNN is on! Why the U.S. Government doesn't warn this network to not cross certain lines is beyond me.

Good work by the trooper!

I'm sure the neighborhood as well as the LEOs can all rest a lot better tonight.

He lucked out.
His partner in crime took two bullets to the head.

That's what happens when you are a murderer and break out of prison!
Nice shooting Trooper!

They had three weeks, and they only got forty miles?

What? These are supposed to have been tough guys, criminals through and through. The time they have served suggests a certain level of physical hardihood, since it is my understanding that one does not get along too well in a place like a jail, unless one can handle oneself.

I am not a hardend criminal, and yet I can cover twenty miles in a day, in all weathers, without overmuch effort. Were these guys just phoning it in or what?

Do not mistake my assertion above as a veiled support, egging them on. I just fail to understand how two aparently motivated criminals only managed forty miles in three weeks. What a pair of slackers.

From what I've read, these 2 guys weren't hardened criminals. They just got mad, killed someone, and went to prison for it. Any of us could get mad and kill someone.

Everyone's making these 2 guys out to be more than they are. I'm surprised they evaded police this long. Has to be an embarrassment to law enforcement in general.
